Current research indicates that OBCS, in addition to being safe and without a higher cancer relapse rate compared to standard BCS, does in fact demonstrate superior cosmetic and patient satisfaction outcomes. Women with heavy pendulous breasts who require breast cancer treatment may also stand to benefit as their breasts may be reduced in size for a better cosmetic outcome and improved convenience in their daily lifestyles.
Although OBCS may appear to involve extensive surgery and scarring, most patients do not require more than a night in the hospital and most of the scars are well concealed in the area around the nipple or in the breast folds.
